Nutrition Basics for Eating Out: Sugar

Here's one last big name in nutrition that our registered dietitians want you to get to know:
Sugar – There is little doubt that sugar is fast becoming the ingredient to watch!  As with any nutrient or food, it’s good to know the facts rather than fall for the hype.  Sugar comes in various forms—sometimes naturally occurring and sometimes added to foods.  Both naturally occurring and added sugars are known by a variety of names.  In general, when you’re craving something sweet, opt for foods with natural sugars, such as fruit, and avoid those with added sugars, such as candy.
